    did you already buy the headunit?

    try getting the headunit first, the stock antenna connector might probably work fine. just take a look at it and see.

    i just installed a head unit in my brothers car today and it didn't need an antenna adapter. I think older cars usually dont need em.

    Just do a search on ebay for an AM/FM Antenna extension and you will find plenty. Maybe you are trying to be to specific.

    I havent personnally seen a car antenna that was different from the very first one I saw when swapping out a head unit. But then I havent pulled a radio out of a car newer then 1998.

    Heres a non ebay link http://www.scosche.com/scosche/antennas/AXT.asp

    Edit: Of course in my googling I see that ford, nissan, VW, BMW and 2002-up Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep have some different antenna adapters.

    ya but they should all be the same, as its a standard antenna for headunits now

    and most japanese cars have the standard antenna i think, gm cars and stuff, u would need the adapter and then the extension

    atleast i hope im right

    Yes, aftermarket HU antenna plugs are standard but just about every auto manufacturer these days has at lease two different ends on the antenna cable. Bought a scosche antenna adapter kit and it had 10 or 12 different ends.

    You should be able to get an extension from just about any car audio place, I know Best Buy and Circuit City have them in 1 foot, 2 foot and 12 foot versions.
